Arduino Extension for Scratch 3.0

Scratch 3.0 doesnot have the standard extension to interface with the popular open source physical computing platforms like Arduino. An extension was build to communicate with the arduino platform. Arduino Uno needs to be flashed with the firmata firmware from the examples. The scratch communicates with the arduino through a intermediate tool developed using the pyfirmata library of the python. This tool helps the kids to learn physical computing concepts easily. This same framework can be used for research on Human Computer Interaction. Also for building tangible devices. The customized version of the Scratch 3.0 and the Scratch linking software called ScratchBridge is released in the github page:https://github.com/vimal-b/scratch4arduino/releases/tag/1%2C0
